The most attractive stall at the event was set by the students of Saudi Arabia to exhibit various aspects of the Arab culture, food and dresses.

Similarly, students from all four provinces of the country set up their stalls to highlight the culture of their areas. There was a special focus on differentiating the culture of rural from urban areas. All departments of the university also set up their stalls.

The diplomats and guests visited all the stalls and showed keen interest in the cultural exhibition.
Speaking on the occasion, the wife of the Iranian ambassador said that she was happy to see a bouquet of various cultures of the Islamic countries presented at the exhibition.

Professor Fateh Malik said the purpose of such events was to provide the students of different Islamic countries with a platform within the campus to present and exhibit their cultures. “It is a step to create unity among the Muslim world.”

Hussain Rawish said that despite the differences in the cultures of Muslims, some common features were clearly exhibited at the cultural show. He urged the students to play their due role in the development of Pakistan.
